ROCK THE CASBAH

It sounds like Marco Roy will be playing center for the Quebec Remparts in 2013-14. The young Q winger, drafted in the second-round by the Oilers in 2013, had some injury issues last season and is returning for his overage season. This is the year Pitlick and Hamilton didn’t get, so we can look at Roy’s 2014-15 season as the other side of the mountain. Roy performed about the same at even strength year over year:

PPG NAME (LEAGUE) GP G A PTS
.630 MARCO ROY (12-13 QMJHL) 65 16 25 41
.615 MARCO ROY (13-14 QMJHL) 39 8 16 24

Meaning that the gap season-over-season offensively came from the power play:

PPG NAME (LEAGUE) GP G A PTS
.400 MARCO ROY (12-13 QMJHL) 65 13 13 26
.256 MARCO ROY (13-14 QMJHL) 39 5 5 10

If Roy had maintained his PP status, he would have been beyond a point-per-game in his draft year +1. It was not to be, and the injuries came during the Pouliot point of his development—meaning he’s burning daylight as a prospect.

EV POINTS-PER-60 ESTIMATES FROM EXTRA SKATER 2013-14

  1. Greg Chase 3.0
  2. Mitchell Moroz 2.6
  3. Marco Roy 2.1
  4. Jackson Houck 2.1
  5. Jujhar Khaira 1.9

Marco Roy is two months older than Greg Chase, four months older than Jackson Houck. The hockey Gods have not been kind to the Oilers when they choose a son from Quebec province, but I cheer like hell for them anyway. Come on, Marco. Rock the Casbah.

    So after he was drafted he changed his name from Marcy to Marco?

  2. supernova says:

    Why the change to center ? Has he played center in the Q? Did he ask for the change?

    More importantly , can he play 2C?

    I know “Someone” who would give him $1 milliion dollars to try out as 2C.

    Man… don’t want to wish away the summer weather but this month is really starting to get loooong. Not overly high on Roy after all his injuries but that Chase guy now there’s a player. I figure we’ll see him with the oilers in the winter of 2016 if not before. This guy is looking like a steal.

  6. Ryan says:

    With respect, didn’t Parkatti’s algo identify the pp bloat in his draft year?

  7. Ryan says:

    I don’t know the first thing about Marco Roy, but bloated pp numbers in a draft year screams, “get yer shine box” Robbie Schrempt.

    I can still hardly believe the Dellow hire. The worst part about it is that it’s giving me hope. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane… :)

    Early Top 10 for 2015 draft, there’s an awesome Finn in there.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2162450-early-ranking-of-the-top-10-prospects-in-the-2015-nhl-draft

    Great article! Odds are that we’ll probably be getting one of those players, and that is incredibly exciting already! It’s scary that Buffalo could very well be getting two of those players.

    The Finn and the Czech are definitely the most compelling to me. It will be interesting to see their offence next season, but they are about 3 inches and 20 lbs bigger than most of the other forwards in that top 10, and could be great 2nd line power LWers going forward, which is probably what we need the most right now in the organization. Nothing wrong with getting another C though.

  11. B S says:

    I wonder if the Oilers put a bug in anyone’s ear about trying Marco out at center? pure speculation of course

  12. Ryan says:

    The irony for poor Dellow is that now he’s privy to information we can only dream about, but now he can’t say a damn thing.

  13. B S says:

    An entire thread late, and maybe it was already brought up, but I didn’t see it anywhere.

    Regarding the value of scouts. They’re hired to examine players and report on them so that the team knows which one to pick up. They’re also used to determine which players to avoid.

    WGs point about rewarding scouts with a late round pick on “their” selection may seem counter productive, but perhaps the line of thought isn’t just “we haven’t picked one of Lars’ in two years”, but rather “Lars helped us avoid picking that kid padding his stats against weak op, then again with that Dman who couldn’t pass worth shit, he really likes this one kid, lets trust him and take him late” still not necessarily the best strategy, but the players missed are just as relevant as the players taken when judging scouting.

  14. haters says:

    This young man can play. Just wait till you see him in pre season. Him and Chase are my fav forward prospects .

    I’m trying to 1-up BS here; I’m two threads late. I’ve been thinking about the Tkachyov camp invite and finally got around to looking the kid up. The numbers certainly indicate a skilled player. A year younger than Yakimov (actually off by only 1 day), and they followed a pretty similar path. I apologize if this was already discussed, but I didn’t see it in the earlier thread.

    Notes:
    MHL – analogous to the CHL I believe
    VHL – analogous to the AHL I think
    W18 – Under 18 World chamionships
    WJr – Under 20 World chamionships

    Age 17:
    Yakimov
    MHL 46-15-10-25
    W18 6-3-4-7 (tied for 16th in scoring)
    Tkachyov
    MHL 47-13-22-35
    W18 7-5-6-11 (tied for 2nd in scoring – 4 pts ahead of Nichushkin and 2 pts ahead of Barbashev)

    Age 18:
    Yakimov
    MHL 11-6-7-13
    VHL 37-8-14-22
    Tkachyov
    MHL 16-7-12-19
    KHL 2-0-0-0
    QMJHL 20-10-20-30 (or 26-17-22-39 if you include the playoffs)

    Age 19:
    Yakimov
    MHL 5-4-2-6
    KHL 33-5-7-12
    WJr 7-1-1-2

    So Tkachyov has brought consistently more offense than Yakimov, but has also been consistently 25% smaller. Not sure exactly what this shows, though Yakimov did have some real success in the KHL in his draft +1 season and is clearly a player of interest. Tkachyov sure looks like he could be a pro hockey player.

    Also, it was mentioned that Tkachyov might have ridden on Barbashev’s coat tails in the Q. But given that he actually had a better PPG (1.50 vs 1.42) than Barbashev that seems unlikely.

    Anyway, agree that he probably should have been drafted by someone, and given that he wasn’t, great to see him coming to camp! Good to see Roy at 2C also!

    I can relate to this. It’s tough to put a cork in it, but it can be done.

    I also have every expectation that Tyler will show a higher degree of professionalism than has been on display in some quarters since his hiring was announced. Which is too bad for the rest of us, but the way it has to be.

    That article is so screwed up. They forgot to make 4/5ths of the article whining about how Tyler made them feel sad.

    Lowetide,
    Read oiler nation story. Can’t wait for edmonton’s feel good story of the year.

    The oilers have a second line center. Everyone should not be surprised when arcobello gets 16 goals and 31 assists this year. He lit up the ahl and showed he is a quality Nhler when not saddled with gazdic.

    I agreed with most of lowetide’s predictions except I think he mixed up arco and draisaitl.
    Leon will be sheltered and brought along slowly in year one, maybe 9 goals and 17 assists in 62 games on the third line. Power forwards take more time (remember slats slapping messier’a helmet in his first couple years).

    Also, Purcell will get 50 points.
